Full Day of Lectures 17/08/2010

IDSF AdjudicatorsSomewhere around 60 IDSF Chairpersons came to Stuttgart to attend  this year`s Congress at the German Open Championship (GOC) Hotel Maritim. The IDSF President Carlos Freitag and the IDSF Sports Director Marco Sietas welcomed the attendants and were pleased with the great interest. They reminded everybody of the great importance and responsibility of the Chairperson's role in a competition. 

20 new applicants came for their first Congress and did their exams. 

First item of the day was the lecture about Electronic Scrutineering and Electronic Judging of IDSF Competitions.

Ralf Pickelmann, experienced in developing scrutineering systems and responsible for the scrutineering team at the GOC, talked about

  • tasks of the organizers and scrutineers
  • tasks of the chairpersons.
And for both cases he addressed
  • tasks before the beginning of the competitions
  • during the rounds
  • execution of the finals
  • tasks after the competition.

After all these explanations the attendants had the possibility to work with the system, organising a competition within the system. It was really interesting to see, how the system works and to learn about the work and tasks of the scrutineers.
